  • Thank you for sharing Gandhiram!

    My native place is Karaikal. Next time when I go, will make it a point to
    visit Nangur.
  • There are about 13 Vaishnava divyadesams in the 'Thirunangur' area and a few Shaivite sthalams. All these are in very close vicinity. The 'Eleven- Garudasevai' in the month of Jan-Feb is quite spectacular and attracts large crowds. The birthplace of Thirumangai Azhwar is Thiruvaali which is among the above 13.
    There are rooms to stay at "Ramanjua Koodam".
